A Letter To My Bully:  Sticks, Stones, and Words Do Hurt                                      

A Letter To My Bully: Sticks, Stones, and Words Do Hurt features seven young girls ages 9-14 years old, who decided to turn their pain into their purpose by writing an open letter to their bullies, all bullies. Taking full advantage of this opportunity, the girls courageously express and release all of their questions, resentment, hurt and anger that has been experienced from their perspective, while standing and affirming their confidence, identity, and power. As they turn their pain into their purpose they are also raising awareness and being advocates for an awesome cause.

A perfect complement to the letters is the expert contribution from five amazing women who have personal and/or professional experience concerning this issue, taking us into a more in-depth look into bullying. This book collaboration informs and gives insight that is great for others being bullied but also an eye opener for bullies to reflect on the negative impact caused by their actions. A Letter To My Bully also serves as a remarkable tool and conversation starter for youth, parents, teachers, and anyone who works with our young girls.

I found A Letter To My Bully particularly gripping. Youth within today's society are faced with many challenges that are rather disturbing and bullying is one that has reached epidemic status. The letters written in this true story reveal how painful and difficult this epidemic has become. The level of cruelty that our youth endure is extremely disheartening. Exposure to bullying is what creates dialogue and hopefully eradication of these acts. I applaud the author and contributors of this book and most importantly the children that were brave enough to share their experiences. everyone should read this book. - Dr. Sandra Smith of
